The current economic situation is an opportunity for businesses to become more efficient by controlling costs, improving internal processes and interactions with vendors, suppliers and customers.

The problem is to do so in a cost effective manner that has an immediate payback. The results have to show up in days or weeks, not months or years.

IDS has been developing focused, web based applications since 1994. Our forte is rapid application development. Timelines run days, not weeks or months. Customers are intimately involved in the design/ feedback process.

IDS provides a total solution: development, hosting, and customer support. No need to use internal resources. No upfront capital expense. No long term commitment.
